There is more genuine merit as a tonic, as a blood maker in
a good beer than you may have supposed. One trial of
good beer will convince you, especially if it's

Commissioner Ware of the pen
sion office told the House Commit
tee on appropriations the other day
that at the rate of mortality among
the veterans of the civil war was
now higher than was ever known
before, and that they were dying
off at an average rate of 150 a day,
which is 54,720 a year. The actu
al decrease in the pension rolls dur
ing the year ending June 30, 1604,
was 49,157, for the following rea
sons: Hy death 43.820
lly remarriage of widow s 1,019
Hy minors coining of age 1.699
Hy failure to rlnitu pension '.337
Otlirr cause .' 1,182
The decieasc, however, was near
ly offset by 47,374 n v names placed
upon the rolls, of whom 326 were
by act of Congress. There arc now
994,762 pensioners, and the num
ber is gradually growing smaller
every year. It will continue to
gtow smaller from this time on.
High tide was reached in 1902,
when the total lacked only 554 of a
Of the present pensioners one is
a widow and two arc daughters of
soldiers of the revolution, 918 wi
dows and one survivor of the war
ofiSi2, 5,886 from the early In
dian wars, 13,035 from the Mexican
war, 26,829 h"om t'le Spanish war
and 11,732 from the regular army,
leaving a balance, of 944,758 from
the civil war, of whom 606 were
army nurccs and 253,960 are wi
dows of men who were killed or
died of disease.
The records of the War Depart
ment show that the different states
and territories furnished 2,778,304
men for the union army. No offi
cial compilation has ever been made
of rc-cnlistmcnts, but they are esti
mated at 543,393, which is believed
to be a fair approximation of the
actual number. The number of
deaths before the Union army dis
banded was 359,528, the number
of deserters 117,247, leaving 1,652,
173 soldiers who survived the con
flict and were entitled to pensions.
This total was increased by about
75,000 seamen and marines who
were alive .it the termination of the
According to the tables prepared
by experts, 1,285,471 of these sol
diers and sailors of the Union army
were alive in 1890, and 858,002 are
alive today, of whom 690,792 are
At the present rate of mortality
all of the survivors would be car
ried off in about twelve years, but
while the average death rate is
likely to increase for the next seven
or eight years, it will decrease rap
idly after that according to the ex
perience of insurance companies,
and not until the year 1945 will we
see the last of the veterans of the
civil war limping up to the pension
office for his allowance. Experts
of the War Department prepared a
table several years ago showing the
probable number of survivors, as
l'roccm of Mnklne Oil Howl
A great transformation has been
wrought in the towns of Southern
California by the use of oil, and the
methods universally used is as fol
tst. Plowing. A mile or less is
plowed at a time. Half the road is
left free for traffic. A reversible
side hill plow is used, with six or
2nd. lireak up the big clods.
Here hand labor is necessary.
3rd. Harrowing. After plow
ing, the big clods can easily be re
duced by the use of a spike-toot lied
4th. Rolling. The lumps left
by the harrow are reduced by a
heavy iron rollfr.
5th. Grading. Making a gentle
slope from center to sides. At this
stage a rain is of great benefit, as it
makes a hard-packed even bed.
6th. Oiling. The sprinkler holds
twenty barrels. The oil is let into
an open box arrangement to regu
late the pressure, and the amount
let into the box is controlled by a
7th. Sanding. An automobile
sauder is used in some sections, but
the ordinary method of sanding the
road after oil has been put on is
by throwing the sand from an ordin
ary cart by a man with a shovel.
8th. The finished road. As solid
and smooth as a city pavement.
For economy's sake only the middle
sixteen or eighteen feet is oiled.

J. C. Barclay of the Western
Union Telegraph Company, and
formerly of Chicago, has perfected
a mechanism to send telegrams by
typewriter. It needs no receiver
at the other end, another typewriter
putting it down as sent. The sys-,
tern has been in operation between
New York and Buffalo for some
Briefly, the invention consists of
an appliance to an ordinary type
writer, by which a person sending
from one city has his message
printed by a similar typewriter in
Unlike any other telegraph print
ing inventions, the typewriter does
not click off the Morse alphabet,
but the sender writes his message
before bin, just as an operater on a
typewriter would do, and the print
ed message appears in duplicate on
the typewriting machine miles dis
tant. All that it is necessary to do at
the other end, it is said, is to iced
paper into the typewriting machine,
or a roll of paper can be so arrang
ed that it will unwind as the mes
sages are received.
According to Mr. Barclay, the
sender need be only a typewriter
operator to use the machine.

A botanical marvel known as the
"baby plant," iudigeneous to Japan,
grows to a height of about three
feet. Tho flower is star-shaped
having five petals of a browu-aud-yellow
color. The calyx encircles
and protects a little figure, bearing
a singular rescmblence to a nude
infant, its tiny arms and legs out
stretched, and the eyes distinctly
marked. An angel-shaped canopy,
having extended arms and wings,
hovers over this diminutive form.
The family of plants of which this
is a member is said to produce al
most perfect models of different ani
mals, insects and birds.
